Tesla side cam captures speeding Mercedes in a near-miss during heavy rain

In a spectacular display made observable by Tesla’s recently improved Dashcam attribute, a Mercedes E-Class is seen dangerously swerving several times across three highway lanes in San Francisco. As seen at a video shared on Reddit, the Model 3’s built-in side and front cameras captures the Mercedes’ ultimately recovering from a potentially terrible accident.

In a recent over-the-air software update, Tesla gave vehicles the ability to record and save video from their onboard unwanted cameras. With close 360-degree video surveillance capabilities, users can save 10-second video clips by tapping the Dashcam icon at the top right-hand corner of the center touchscreen.

Tesla’s rollout of Sentry Mode is partially to thank for the updated camera recording abilities. Although the extended Dashcam attribute was supplied as part of a larger software update at the end of February, the idea of having Tesla’s Autopilot cameras to also double as a dashcam recording apparatus is something which ’s been in discussion for more than a year because CEO Elon Musk first hinted at the upcoming feature. 

Along with playing loud music and recording video after an intrusion detection, Sentry Mode can upload footage directly to Tesla’s servers as a backup, thereby protecting owners from thieves knowledgeable to remove the USB data storage drive in front of a break-in.

Several videos like the one capturing the Mercedes’ near-miss highway incident  have previously popped up on the Internet, including ones that capture tried robberies and accidents in actions. Given the enhanced perspective on occasions now made possible with Tesla side cameras, the possibility of recording video from the remaining side pillar and back cameras on appropriately equipped vehicles would likely be a welcome feature later on.
